Season to feature two world premieres by James Kudelka and Jessica Lang; two classic story ballets: the Company Premiere of Lar Lubovitch’s Othello, and the return of Sir Frederick Ashton’s Cinderella; and the timeless tradition of Robert Joffrey’s The Nutcracker!

CHICAGO – The Joffrey Ballet, led by Artistic Director Ashley C. Wheater, proudly announces its 2009-2010 Season, opening with The Joffrey Ballet Premiere of Lar Lubovitch’s passionate story ballet Othello, October 14-25, 2009. This legendary season continues with Chicago’s family holiday favorite, Robert Joffrey’s The Nutcracker, December 11– 27, 2009. Back by popular demand, the winter of 2010 brings Sir Frederick Ashton’s Cinderella to the Auditorium Theatre stage, February 17-28, 2010. The 2009-2010 Season closes with a springtime, mixed repertoire program entitled Eclectica, featuring a World Premiere by the highly acclaimed James Kudelka (first introduced to audiences by the late Robert Joffrey), and a second World Premiere by the young and extremely talented Jessica Lang, one of the few female choreographers working in the classical realm. The program also features Gerald Arpino’s neoclassical work Reflections, April 28-May 9, 2010.

Continuing in The Joffrey Ballet’s mission to provide the highest level of performance quality, the season will feature live orchestral accompaniment by the Chicago Sinfonietta, the nation’s most diverse orchestra. The Joffrey Ballet will perform in its home venue, the historic Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, in downtown Chicago at 50 East Congress Parkway.


“I am thrilled for The Joffrey Ballet to present this diverse and legendary season,” comments Joffrey Ballet Artistic Director Ashley C. Wheater. “We are expanding the company’s capacity this season -from the classicism of Cinderella to the powerful and emotional depth of contemporary dance with Lar Lubovitch’s stunning full length ballet, Othello. I also look forward to presenting these two new works by James Kudelka, who was discovered and first presented by Robert Joffrey himself, and Jessica Lang, who continues to amaze audiences with her choreography.”

In the fall of 2009, The Joffrey Ballet will present the full-length story ballet, Othello choreographed by Chicago-born Lar Lubovitch. Lar Lubovitch’s three-act ballet follows Shakespeare’s tale of love, passion, jealousy and betrayal. Othello is beautifully told through Lubovitch’s expression of language through contemporary choreography in collaboration with the commissioned score by Academy Award® winner, Elliot Goldenthal. A Joffrey Premiere, this reinterpreted ballet was commissioned by the American Ballet Theatre and San Francisco Ballet and was first performed in New York City in 1997 by American Ballet Theatre. Othello will be presented October 14 – 25, 2009.

Chicagoland’s most popular holiday tradition, Robert Joffrey’s production of The Nutcracker, will again transform the Auditorium Theatre into a land of beauty, fantasy and wonder. The Tchaikovsky masterpiece, featuring the full Joffrey company, local children’s choruses and more than 120 young dancers, will be presented in seventeen performances, December 11 – 27, 2009.

In February 2010, The Joffrey Ballet welcomes back Sir Frederick Ashton’s Cinderella, regarded as one of his greatest full length ballets. Performed in three acts, the classic rags-to-riches story comes to life in a dazzling ballet set to Sergei Prokofiev’s brilliant score, with breathtaking sets and costumes designed by David Walker. Ashton’s Cinderella is a mysterious and magical fantasy world, where the comedy of Cinderella’s pantomime step-sisters – unlucky in looks and love – provides the perfect foil for the developing romance of Cinderella and the Prince. Last performed by The Joffrey Ballet in October 2006, Cinderella will be presented February 17 – February 28, 2010.

Dance Salad Festival is scheduled for April 5, 6 and 7, at 7:30 pm, Wortham Center, Cullen Theater. Now celebrating the 12th anniversary season in Houston and 15th season since its inception in Brussels, Belgium, Dance Salad Festival promises another gathering of world-class performers. Famous in their own countries, the dance companies have won praise from critics and audiences wherever they have toured. Dance Salad Festival has presented dancers, choreographers and companies from the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Dancers from the following companies have been confirmed for the 2007 Festival:

Compagnia Aterballetto (Reggio Emilia, Italy): Founded in 1979, Aterballetto has gained a strong reputation in their native Italy and Europe, boasting a solid repertoire of works by well-known choreographers. Under the direction of Mauro Bigonzetti, the company has prospered and toured with his original choreography. Cantata, set to folk music from southern Italy and accompanied by four singers on stage, addresses the relations between the sexes in a highly vivid and nostalgic style. WAM (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) set to music by Mozart and choreographed by Bigonzetti, is a glimpse into the life of the composer and his quest for the heights of creative expression. Both pieces will make their US debut at Dance Salad Festival. Lead dance critic, John Rockwell, writing in the New York Times end-of-the-year Dance Review (Sunday, December 24, 2006), singled out several choreographers to watch, including Mauro Bigonzetti’s “memorable” choreography for the New York City Ballet’s Diamond Project as well as the “poetic” work of Alexei Ratmansky of the Bolshoi Ballet (see below).

Bolshoi Ballet (Moscow, Russia): Russia's premier ballet company for more than 225 years, named Alexei Ratmansky Artistic Director in 2004. He has worked extensively as a choreographer with more than 20 ballets to his credit. In this Houston premiere, Ratmansky presents his own choreography, Middle Duet, set to the music of Part I of Yuri Khanin’s Middle Symphony. In the New York Times end-of-the-year Dance Review, (see above), Claudia La Rocco proclaimed, "Another small work that stole the show was Alexei Ratmansky's Middle Duet, performed at the New York City Ballet."  She described this ballet as a "sleek, sophisticated foray into sexual politics..." where "there is no room for throat-clearing."   In The Bulletin (Brussels, Belgium) Luisa Moffett remarks, "this choreography is an extraordinary expression of grief over a doomed relationship, eloquent in its use of the woman’s limbs to convey her increasing despair." For Dance Salad Festival, we will have the actual Bolshoi Soloists, hand-picked by Artistic Director Ratmansky.  Performing this acclaimed work will be Natalia Osipova, and Andrey Merkuriev, formerly of the Kirov Ballet.  Soloist Osipova was just featured in "25 to Watch" in Dance Magazine (January 2007). Margaret Wills states, "Natalia Osipova streaks across the stage with over-the-top jetés...The 20-year-old's prodigious talent has sped her from corps to soloist at the Bolshoi Ballet in under two years…In pure dance work she sparkles and spins, making tricky techniques look effortless and singling herself out as someone to train your binoculars on."

La Compañia Nacional de Danza (Mexico City, Mexico): This outstanding dance company will be presenting several US premieres at the 2007 Dance Salad Festival. Selections from Carmen, choreographed by Alberto Alonso with music from Suite de Rodion Shchedrin, based on the original Carmen music by George Bizet, will captivate audiences.  Additionally, the company will be premiering the beautiful pas de deux, Sobre Los Techos de la Luna, choreographed by Jaime Camarena.  El Viaje a la Luna takes audiences on a surrealistic and nostalgic ride to the moon, utilizing pop culture graphics. Based on the 1902 French film by Georges Melies in his version of the Jules Verne’s story, A Trip to the Moon, features a rocket careening into space and poking the eye of the man in the moon. Choreographer Raul Parrao beautifully creates and executes his whimsical tale set to contemporary Mexican music and through dance and strong graphic images, takes viewers on a ride to remember through 3-D glasses!
